09:34 AM ET 08.17 | Former Yankee outfielder Chad Curtis was found guilty of inappropriately touching three teenage girls Friday by a West Michigan jury. The pinstripe perv was convicted on six counts of criminal sexual conduct and could face up to 15 years in prison. Curtis, 44, was accused of touching two 15-year-old girls last year when he was a volunteer weight-room strength trainer at an area high school. His duties included massage therapy for muscle rehabilitation. He was arrested in May 2012. A 16-year-old girl later told authorities that he touched and fondled her in 2011. Curtis, who won two World Series rings with the Yankees, played for several teams during his nine-year MLB career.

The guy spends 10 years in the big leagues with seven different ball clubs, two plus seasons as a Yankee, originally a California Angel system product, and the writer calls him a former Yankee. OK. True, but a former lot of things, just not an employee of that school anymore.

Massage therapy in a high school? Must be the suburbs.

But the "pinstripe perv" does have a nice ring to it.

Bud Selig is looking into this as we speak, to see if Arod had any involvement.

On the brighter side of things, at least he wasn't fondling young boys. That has to count for something these days
